Father Rod Bower of the Anglican parish of Gosford announced his support of gay rights in 2011 with an outdoor sign that read, “Supporting marriage equality.” Now a photo of a recent sign has gone viral.
Bower posted a photo on the church’s Facebook page of their sign, which reads, “Dear Christians / Some people are gay / Get over it / Love God,” on July 23. It has gotten nearly 7,500 likes and more than 4,000 shares.
“Normally one of my posts might get a few thousand views, but nothing like this,” Bower said in an article from Australian newspaper The Telegraph.
“This has gone international now—there are people liking it all over the world, and it is just a little sign in Gosford.”
There have been a handful of negative responses, but Bower says reactions were overall positive.
“I have had a number of phone calls and ran into people who have said, ‘Good on you; this is really great,’ also,” he commented. “I think it shows that it’s an important issue and that a lot of people have spiritual questions that are not being met by traditional forms of Christianity.” readmore
